Brain thumper

Part 1: In a gramatically correct sentence, use the same word four times in a row. Do not use proper names, a language other than English, or anything else distasteful. EDIT: Don't use repetition just for the sake of repetition. Have the words in the sentence mean something in the context of the sentence besides just being repetitive.

Part 2: Same thing, but use the same word five times in a row.

Part 1: The robot was given the command to turn "right, right, right, right;" making him turn in a circle.

See, that's simple repetition. How about having the words mean something in the context of the sentence beyond sheer repetition?

Part 2: This is how can a robot can turn right--right, right, right, right, right; right?

So I went above and beyond by using "right" seven times.

Then you get to look at the comment I just left (right?) for jelly_doughnut...

Is there only one correct answer to this?

There is one I am familiar with. This "right" thing the boys above you isn't what I had in mind...

See the revamped rule. I wasn't talking about repetition for repetition's sake.

...and what/who is a Sibbie?

An old favorite of mine:
John, where James had had had had had had had had had had had the teacher's approval.

(With punctuation)
John, where James had had "had," had had "had had." "Had had" had had the teacher's approval.

A power company's power lies within the power of its shareholders who theoretically have the ultimate power to hire and fire the company's officers.

drbear posted one of my favourite answers, but my other favourite reads as follows:

Bill's job was to put up signs above shops to say what they sold, but he squashed up the sign above the take-away too much. Specifically, he failed to put sufficiently large spaces between "fish" and "and", and "and" and "chips".
